Independently bottled Laphroaig is getting harder and harder to come by, and it is commanding higher and higher prices. This 1998 bottling at 53.3% is 18-19 years of age. If it is anything like the other Elements of Islay releases we've had, it won't disappoint. Only 30 bottles in Calgary, exclusive to KWM!
Producer Description: “A marriage of a trio of ex-Madeira wine casks from 1998, Lp8 promises a beautifully sweet and smoky Laphroaig, giving a slightly softer edge to what is known as the typically medicinal Islay whisky.”
Producer Tasting Note
Nose: Brine and freshly laid tar are followed by prunes and dates. Classic medicinal notes of TCP mix with blood orange.
Palate: A cloak of dense, dark fruit and sooty smoke is draped over zesty grapefruit and dry spices. Cardamon and nutmeg mix with darkchocolate-filled lime boiled sweets.
Finish: More classic medicinal notes, with smoke and salt-encrusted mackerel skins to follow.
